Top 5 Tuesday: DEAR SANTA – I WOULD LIKE THESE 5 BOOKS!

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday comes from the one and only, Bionic Book Worm. This is the last Top 5 Tuesday of the year, and the topic is 5 books that I want to find under the tree.


Mistborn – Wax and Wayne Series

I bought myself the original Misborn Trilogy some time ago, and fell in love after the first book. I’m in the process of finishing the original trilogy, and would love to see a book or two from the second series under my tree.


The Rhythm of War

Though not technically released yet, I have heard that the fourth book in the Stormlight Archive’s series can be pre-ordered for its’ 2020 release. It is probably my favourite series right now, so if Santa didn’t get this for me, you can bet I’ll get it for myself.


10 Games to Play in Your Head by Yourself

I heard about this book through a YouTube channel that I watch, and it sounded like a really interesting concept. It’s supposed to help you pass the time, so I thought it would be perfect for me.

The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek

Good Mythical Morning is one of my favourite YouTube channels to watch, and the two hosts Rhett and Link wrote a book together, so of course I want to get my hands on it to read it!


Surprise Me!

I have actually received a few books that were given to me that I didn’t ask for, and I have enjoyed them quite a bit. Just because its not on my list, doesn’t mean I won’t like it. Some times a random book will be a terrific find.


What are some of the books you want to find under your tree this Christmas? Let me know in the comments.
